How can I remove extra hard drives?

Hard drives
I have a windows 12 domain server running on an independent 500gb HD. I also have 3 additional HD that files were saved on. I moved the files and want to remove the 3, now blank, HD's. When I remove them, the system will not boot. If the OS is on an independent drive, why won't the system boot with only that drive attached?

    The three extra hard drives were set up as raid 5 thru windows disk management, but not the OS hard drive of 500GB. I did remove the raid and deleted the volumes, so they show up as unallocated / unformatted / empty disks at this time.
